It has been awhile since last we posted on our visit to  McLean Mill National Historic Site in Port Alberni, a wonderful heritage museum that is full of treasures and exhibits from a bygone era.  This museum is an important link to Vancouver Island’s past, paying homage to the logging industry, one of the key […]

Vancouver Island history is part of a rich tapestry of stories and events that have unfolded here, creating the communities and landmarks that are so meaningful to those who live here.  These features speak to the efforts undertaken during the early years of colonization, resulting in a myriad of museums and sites to visit that […]

As we continue to work on our personal projects here at Toad Hollow, we find that some of these projects leave us with a distinct sense of the profound.  This is especially true in regard to our project we refer to as “The Anglican Church Project“.  This exciting undertaking finds us visiting all of the […]

It’s not often at all that we come across a car that I’ve never heard of or seen before.  Every once in awhile, however, it does happen.  Such is the case with our encounter of a 1916 Franklin car we found one hot summers day as we were out enjoying the weather and landscapes of […]

It is often said that one man’s garbage is another man’s gold.  For some people a scene like this appears to hold something that is better left to the auto wreckers.  Other people, like me, see an endless sea of possibility. Whether you are a purist at heart and can only imagine this gem restored […]

Time seems to have a funny way of always running forward.  You can imagine my surprise the other day when I was going through some of the pictures I have here waiting to be processed to find an entire set of images captured at the Duncan Antique Truck Show in the summer of 2013 at […]

Some items we have a chance to photograph have a life of their own.  The stories of those who once owned them are forever imprinted in their fabric, and if you listen closely you can learn a little of the person and the times they came from.  In today’s post we are continuing a new […]

As the car slowly snaked its way down the narrow road, we were almost afraid to exhale.

Left to speculate as to whether the camera coldly bearing down on us was, in fact, recording […]
